  • Fabulous house

    "My family of 8 stayed in the Casa Capuchin in March, 2016. We were a bit nervous, because we had never rented out of the country. This house is everything and more as described. We had a wonderful time and Alex was so very attentive to our needs. We missed our plane flight and he arranged to have everyone picked up and cars delivered to the house. When you walk in the door , you feel as if you are on a scenic overlook of the most spectacular scene that you could ever see. The house has a wonderful maid service, is ultra comfortable, and is in a great location. You can walk to all the restaurants. The beach needs to be driven particularly when it is hot, however there is an easy bus that you can catch. The monkeys visited us for sure and we heard howling monkeys as well. We would love to come back!"

  • Our Shangri-La

    "A family group of five adults, we were thrilled with our week-long Villa La Vista experience. The Villa is beautiful, and we so enjoyed hearing the comforting sounds of the ocean surf at all times of day. We happily spread out into the three spacious bedrooms (one in a separate apartment), each with its private ocean-view patio, and air-conditioning. We gathered in the main living area to enjoy the comfy chairs and sofa for reading and wifi time, or we moved on to the ocean-view patio, which everyone sought out from dawn ‘til dusk. That’s where we watched a sloth hanging out for twenty-four hours on a nearby tree; and that’s where the squirrel and white-faced monkeys visited us. Squirrel monkeys are not to be missed—they play like kittens! The kitchen was convenient and well-equipped, although we mainly prepared breakfast and lunch, as eating out was fun at the many nearby restaurants which we could easily walk to. With vegetarians in our group, we loved Café Milagro, which turned into one of our favorite spots for an occasional breakfast as well as dinner. Fred’s provided a fabulous view of the spectacular sunsets. The Villa, which is located on a dirt road, is very quiet and private—so private that it was possible to skinny dip in our own “plunge pool.” The pool is beautifully surrounded by flowering plants such as the magnificent hanging “lobster claw,” and it was our go-to spot for a fast refresher whenever we got too warm, for instance when we had made the walk back up the hill after a swim in the ocean. The ocean is just ten minutes down the road from the Villa; we couldn’t believe what felt like our own private white sand beach, with excellent surf! We were also thrilled to find trees lining the beach, so that we didn’t have to stay in the sun. Getting set up to stay at the Villa was made very easy by its owner, Nancy, who provided fast feedback and excellent information—everything one could want. The concierge, Geralyn, couldn’t have been more helpful, before and during our visit, from setting up tours to providing a birthday cake to calling cabs when our Spanish was insufficient. We were also grateful for the excellent attentions of the housekeeper, Lidette, and the groundskeeper, Chino. It was so very nice not to have to do laundry (unless we preferred to do it ourselves) and occasionally to have fresh sheets. Our only complaint? We should have stayed longer - and we will next year!"

  • Beautiful view, close to everything

    "We were here a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All amenities and the ocean are within walking distance. We did rent a car but only because we wanted to explore other areas nearby. Bus transportation to National Park and Quepos is easy and inexpensive. We stayed in the one bedroom with a beautiful view of the ocean from the veranda. A convenience store and restaurants are all within walking distance. The pool is a short walk down the stairs where we could relax after a day of exploring. Note that the howler monkeys are your alarm clock routinely in the morning if you are a light sleeper. Also, if you are not a night owl, the music from the venues nearby could be loud occasionally. Overall, we had an excellent stay. Anna, Richard and David were very helpful with plenty of tips for our travels. We highly recommend this economical vacation rental!"

  • We found our "Cheeseburger in Paradise"

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Carolina. The house was a perfect fit for our family of eight with three little ones. It was immaculately maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Elisabeth, the house keeper, was wonderful! She made the best scrambled eggs I have ever had and is a professional origamist. She made the most creative paper designs on the end of every toilet paper roll in the house every day. Saul and Willie did a great job of coordinating our adventures and giving us great tips on beaches and restaurants. This was better than a 5 star luxury hotel or resort, as you had all the services and amenities of a resort but you had the privacy of having it all to yourself. We always felt very safe with 24 hour security and the gated driveway. The best part for me was the BBQ area, I was able to make the best cheeseburgers on the outside grill in the outside kitchen and we enjoyed them as we watched the sun sink into the Pacific from the infinity pool. It became known as "Cheeseburger in Paradise" time. Casa Carolina should be on everyone's bucket list."
